I had $10 worth of Sears points that were about to expire so I got a pair of these shoes.
The sizing runs a little big and a little wide. I normally wear a men's 10, in this shoe I wear a 9.5. I have a fairly narrow foot, and these are a bit too wide in the forefoot and toebox. I'd say they are wider in those areas that asics/new balance which is what I normally wear.
I think appearance wise, they are much better looking than the Kmart shoes of my childhood, but maybe I'm just getting old and out of touch with what "looks cool".
The shoes are not well designed. The shiny, plasticy trim stuff on the top of the forefoot makes the shoe flex oddly in the toe area.
The cushioning seems a little odd and a little flat. These would be terrible running shoes, but for everyday kickin' around use, they are fine.
For $10 (or free in my case) they aren't bad, but that is about all they are worth.
